Indian sweets and desserts are a pure representation of happiness and excitement, and Motichoor Ladoos are the special ones among them.
Make sugar syrup - Combine sugar and water into a wide pan. Bring it to a boil and add lemon juice. Add saffron strands and cardamom powder to the syrup. Allow the syrup to simmer until it reaches one-string consistency.
Make the batter - Combine besan, food color, and ghee in a bowl. Add water and make a lump-free thick batter. Slowly and gradually add water to make a smooth, lump-free, and pourable batter.
Fry boondi - Once the ghee is hot, pour the batter through jhara. Shake it vigorously over the oil so that the batter drops through those holes as tiny droplets. Fry them for a minute, then remove them immediately.
Add to sugar syrup - Add the fried motichoor boondis to the sugar syrup. Cook the boondi at the lowest setting. Take the pan off the heat and add slivered pistachios and melon seeds.
Shape Ladoo - When comfortable enough to touch, take a golf-sized mix into your palms and roll them into spherical-shaped ladoos. Repeat the same with the remaining mix and shape all the ladoos.
Whether it is a celebration or any festive occasion, these motichoor ladoos never fail to impress anyone.
